My experience with Thomas has been great! My son can get distracted easily and Thomas keeps his attention and demonstrates the right balance of patience and firmness to keep my son engaged while letting him know the importance of practice and proper technique. He was definitely the right choice for my son:)

I teach beginner and intermediate violin students helping them develop their bow technique and intonation.

About Yoon Jae
I am a highly-skilled professional musician certified as a certified Steinway education partner with over 14 years of teaching experience. I offer lessons in classical piano, violin, viola, conducting, arranging/orchestration as well as private tutoring in ear training and theory.

My main instrument is piano and I specialize in teaching students who already play the instrument and wish to get a more in-depth experience with piano literature by learning new repertoire and developing their technique. I also teach adult beginners and young beginners whose parents have a dedicated commitment to having their children make music an integral part of their education. For all my students, I emphasize the importance of practicing efficiently and developing critical listening skills. This encourages consistent improvement and whatever your perso
nal piano goals and skill levels are, I will help you improve and enjoy playing the piano more. I am very patient, encouraging and supportive of your desire to play the piano better. In addition to piano, I teach beginner and intermediate violin and viola students.

I encourage all my students to perform once or twice a year but this is entirely optional and based on the student's comfort level.

I am available and willing to travel to your home for an extra fee as long as public transportation is available.

I'm so glad I ended up with Yoon Jae for my very first violin lesson. He took me through the first steps - as basic as holding the violin - really carefully and not at all condescendingly, even though I'm an adult who never even learned to read music. In fact, he couldn't have been more patient. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to learn violin in a supportive atmosphere!

Mr. Marino is by far the greatest, and most talented instrumental instructor I have ever had. The amount of patience and passion he has for this art is resonate in his teaching style. I had the absolute pleasure of working with him for 6 years and I can truly say I have learned a wealth of information and have become incredibly skilled at multiple instruments thanks to Mr. Marino.

For beginner lessons the basics come first! Your first lesson will focus on learning the parts of your instrument and holding your instrument with comfort. Your skills will grow weekly and you will soon have the ability to play scales, exercises and songs!
For more practiced students, we will work on your sight reading, ear training, music theory and techniques. Whatever area you feel you need more work in will be our focus.

About Jessie
Hi! I'm a professional musician and educator! I've been teaching Violin, Viola, Cello, Piano, Ukulele, Vocals, Guitar & Bass for 10 years. I Studied Music Performance and Education at the College of Staten Island. I've been playing since 5 years old, starting on piano and have picked up multiple instruments over the years.

Working with all ages & levels from beginner to advanced has shown me that every student is different and unique, and that is why I form my lessons to each students needs and wants, helping to make their learning experience interesting, fun, and educational on multiple levels. Every category will be covered in our lessons together... ear training, sight reading, technique, theory and other areas are equally as important when learning to play an instrument!

I'm in a few different musical projects, one of which being a
wedding band, playing over 150 shows a year. I also write original music, am working on my second album, and can help with song writing and improvisation if that is something that interests you. Looking forward to helping you on your musical journey!

I have studied with members of the Juilliard Quartet, and hold degrees from Juilliard and Harvard. As a teacher, I aim to give my students the tools to analyze and improve their own playing. I currently teach in the Preparatory Division at the Juilliard School and at the Interlochen Arts Camp.

As a professional violinist, my performance experiences range from solo (Sapporo Symphony Orchestra, Sendai Philharmonic, and AXIOM Ensemble, among others) to orchestral (Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, New World Symphony, Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra, and more) to even popular music (Stars of the Lid tour and Cheryl B. Engelhardt's CD One Up)! I am constantly evaluating my own musicality and the physical mechanics of how I play, and I apply this to my teaching of students of all levels.
